Do you know that today is national cookie day! I love, love, love a good cookie. Not too crisp…well unless it’s a biscotti made for dunking… a little chewy and loaded with stuff, good stuff!
The English word “cookie” is derived from the Dutch work “koekje” meaning little cake. Dutch bakers used to test oven temperatures on small amounts of batter, so that they wouldn’t waste it all if the temperature was not just right. Soon they learned that these little morsels were pretty delicious!
Hopefully these ingredients and some inspiration…
will turn into this!
This absolutely hands down, one of the highlights of being with my sister at Christmas…is all the baking that we will do! Are you getting the recipes in order my sister dear? With Christmas falling in the middle of the week, we should get some extra baking time in!
AlleyCat has been very mischevious lately! I keep telling her that Santa Kitty will not be leaving her anything in her stocking…but I don’t think that she believes me!
and until next time…keep on stitching
